Discussion on: Git commit message convention that you can follow!

This post is a good intro to conventional commits, but I guess I don't agree that this is a "standard" -- it's popular, but I'd say less than 20% of git projects overall use conventional commits.

Just remember to look at what the typical commit looks like in a project before committing and try to follow suit. For smaller fun projects you might run into gitmoji, for corporate projects a ticket Id + summary style is common, etc.
